Minot mayor: Water to top dikes within hour
The resulting deluge is expected to dwarf the historic flood of 1969, when the Souris reached 1,554.5 feet above sea level. Zimbelman said the river was already just a tenth of an inch shy of that level at one bridge Tuesday afternoon. It’s expected to hit nearly 1,563 feet this weekend—topping the historical record of 1,558 feet set in 1881 by Friday or Saturday.
About 10,000 Minot residents were evacuated earlier this month before the river hit 1,554.1 feet. They were later allowed to return to their homes, but told to be ready to leave again quickly.

I will leave aside the debate as to if and when God judges.
The unique Christian response to calamity and the preparation to calamity are one and the same ……..prayer.
